Experimenting w. Poetry: A Little Covenant

I covenant to you

Here is my blood

Sprinkle it across

Your heart and be healed

I broke my vow to

You

My soul be still

My heart be calm

What have I done?

I covenant to you

My will be gone

My desires be extinguished

In the fire of your love

And I will renew my soul

And live with you

For ever and ever

Under eternity sun

On earth as in heaven

Your will be done

I will never again

Break my vows

I will never again

Despise your name

And live in shame

Or regret your fame

Or abandon your house

I will speak of righteousness

To all who come to worship

And I will never again

Burden your fragile soul

O God,

I will never again

Sin

And when I break this promise

We will do this again
